On top of that yesterday I was feeling a little under the weather and so missed Mosaic Monday at Mary's for the first time in I don't know how long.
So, today I'm joining Tam @The Gypsy's Corner for 3 or More Tuesday and popping in on Susan's Deck the Halls meme @ Thoughts From Over The Rainbow.
I started collecting Byers Choice Carolers many years ago after admiring them in the home of an American friend who I met whilst living in Bavaria, Germany.
I began by assembling my Salvation Army Band which I discovered in a beautiful Christmas shop in Windsor, Berkshire.
Then whenever I came across the Carolers, whilst on vacation in the States, I would always buy "a couple" from the Victorian shoppers range.
Family and friends soon caught on and before long I was receiving Carolers as Christmas gifts,. One year I received the flickering lamp post, under which the Salvation Army gathers every year.
